Greg Norman has joined the TaylorMade tour staff ahead of the US Masters at Augusta National, Georgia, where he’ll be using their driver, irons, ball, staff bag as well as sporting the logo on the side of his headwear.

The relationship began when ‘The Great White’ decided to use the TaylorMade TP Red golf ball with at the Open Championship, which he led going into the final round before finishing tied for third.

The Australian said: “I’m pleased discussions have evolved to the extent that I am now a member of the TaylorMade Staff. TaylorMade’s approach to the game and equipment design is very similar to my own.
